Frequency Electronics’ Rubidium Atomic Clock Passes Muster Possibly for U.S.A.F.’s GPS IIIF Satellite
Always great to pass a test and that’s what occurred when Frequency Electronics, Inc. (“FEI” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ-FEIM) announced its next generation Rubidium atomic clock successfully completed a Critical Design Review (CDR) by prime contractor Lockheed Martin Space for potential use on the U.S. Air Force’s GPS III Follow On (GPS IIIF) satellite program.
The Digital Rubidium Atomic Frequency Standard (DRAFS) clock is an evolution of previous generation Rubidium atomic clocks designed for space applications. The DRAFS clock leverages technology developed by FEI and currently in operation on several government satellites. The successful CDR allows the new DRAFS clock to move forward into fabrication and testing to verify performance.
